Do you have a knack for problem solving and simplifying complex ideas into well-structured and seamless code? Do you have experience with multiple software environments and working across various different disciplines, not willing to settle for mediocre solutions? Then this job opening may be an excellent fit for you!


Your role

 Your main challenge is to design, maintain and automate features in our front-end layer that will be deployed to our infrastructure. You will be working on creating a modern user interface to meet our customers' needs and expectations. By utilizing TypeScript as your primary language for front-end development, you will make sure that your code is bug-free by utilizing automated tests. Next to front-end related work you will also create APIs to supply your front-end with data, using Laravel and PHP.


All software is rolled out in a way that embraces Site Reliability Engineering best practices. You are critical in looking at the work of other members of the team and wherever possible will go the extra mile to help improve our work in a structural way. Not only by changing the technical components but also in helping your colleagues improve.


You recognize that Software Engineering is not only a technical role but is a tool to raise the bar for the whole organization and to deliver applications and features for our partners and customers.


You go beyond the code and want to gain insight into all layers of our stack to provide the most simplistic, optimal and performant solutions.


Being responsive to change and adaptable to disruption is the way you move through life and that’s how you embrace software engineering to accomplish your end goals. You have a mature understanding of the practical use cases for documenting code you create as you collaborate with others to create meaningful software that people love to use.


You do not shy away from customer reliability engineering and recognize why understanding the customer’s needs is of utmost relevance for everything we are building. Your English communication skills are fluent, and you can carefully listen and read what our partners, customers and colleagues are saying, while at the same time you are able to formulate excellent responses in both written and spoken form.

About Guardian360

The core driving force for us at Guardian360 is the firm belief that it is unfair that organisations and people have invested in IT resources and cannot use them without fear of criminals.


To mitigate this, we have made it our mission to help those we serve to make sense of the complex challenges involved when it comes to information security. The insights we provide empower our users to become in control so that they can fearlessly pursue their dreams.


We empower those responsible for “the business” to perform risk management, and in those responsible for “IT” are empowered to perform technical actions necessary to increase information security.


Our deep-seated moral obligation drives us to challenge the status quo. We dare to make unpopular choices; we question the sense of introducing more and more functions and data and will often take the complete opposite direction of others in our industry. In all our endeavours we pursue one common thread; it must make sense to benefit our customers technically, financially, morally, efficiently.


The headquarters of Guardian360 is in Utrecht and is easily accessible by public transport, bicycle, and car. We encourage our employees in the Netherlands to meetup at HQ once a week, but for the most part we work remotely. Our team members living abroad meet up with the rest of the team once a year. Despite the distance we are a very tight knit team who motivate, challenge, and care for each other.
